Diets are based on less

The whole concept of a diet is backwards, because in most cases, what society thinks of as a "diet" is based on the idea of less.

The idea of deprivation, ingrained in many diets, gives us control over a situation in the short term. It doesn't become a habit,  and 10 days — maybe two weeks — later, we see that deprivation rebound when self-control finally dwindles.

How to stick to a diet

Make small but sustainable changes, stay away from anything extreme, and build up small changes over time. 

Most people would rather have a horrible 10 days of a raw, low-carb, no salt, no sugar, no water diet and return to their old habits than really have to address that $150 Frappuccino bill they're racking up each month.

Make a slow change

  • Instead of jumping straight to a vegan diet, commit to two handfuls of veggies at every dinner meal, at least three days a week first. The slower change will make it more likely to last.
  • Instead of a 21-day sugar "cleanse," try to slowly wean yourself off of all six pumps of vanilla in your 'breakfast latte' and eventually, make yourself some eggs at home.
  • Instead of jumping on the paleo diet trend, just clean out all the processed and packaged snacks and replace them with sliced carrots, celery, and bell peppers.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
